   Eudora (by Steve Dorner) is free and the latest version and docs can be
FTP'ed from ftp.qualcomm.com in /mac/eudora(/beta).

   MacTCP is NOT free anymore because Apple has decided to start charging
for their system software on a per piece basis.  Nevertheless, because of
existing agreements, it is still being distributed with some freely
distributed packages.
The latest (?) version (1.1.1, required to run with Sys 7.1), is available
with the demo package Xgator on the Sumex archives (sumex-aim.stanford.edu)
in the /info-mac/demo directory.  Of course, according to Apple, you may
not use this MacTCP with any other piece of software..........
